About Me

I’m an advertising and product photographer working in London and across Europe specialising in portraiture, product photography and stop motion animation. I’ve worked with the likes of Kerrang!, Total Guitar, Rhythm, the BBC, DHL and Jägermeister.

 I was born in Chicago and started my career in the US Air Force. I was stationed in England and here I discovered my love for proper football, full English breakfasts and Yorkshire puddings.

On leaving the Air Force I moved to the UK and turned my attention back to my first passion, photography. I live near Cambridge and work in London, and have my fill of as many roast dinners as I can healthily eat.

I work with brands, magazines and ad agencies with a focus on advertising portraiture. I’ve been fortunate to work with bands, musicians and celebrities too, on promotional and commercial portraits. I love to capture genuine moments, humour and the personalities of the people I meet.

I also bring products to life with stop motion animation. I’ve worked with a number of brands and agencies to tell the story of a product through fun, creative animated videos.

I work mainly in London as well as across Europe and the UK.
